The original "Constant" was created by mystified for Webbed Hand Records ( www.webbedhandrecords.com ). It was a longform track that was in essence one extended drone sound, though full of interesting artifacts and harmonics. This piece was re-created in different ways by several artists of the TZP Drone Company NetLabel. They took up the idea of creating a more or less constant sound that could be listened to for extended periods of time. Now Tribe Of Astronauts have taken up the...

"Missive 2" is a longform remix of the underground ambient hit, "Remote Missive" ( www.webbedhandrecords.com ). Like the original, it is based on space travel, and the idea of taking personal objects on space trips-- contraband. This practice has been widespread, apparently, though not condoned by authorities. In this mix, emphasis has been placed on texture and stereo effect. The Tribe hope you enjoy it. Topics: longform, drone, ambient, soundscape

This is... Topics: ambient, anonymous, conceptual, drone, experimental, industrial, soundscape
